Is it just me, or has this forum's DNS lookup had problems lately?

I've intermittently received a "Forbidden" place-holder when navigating to the site over the past few days.

It was not just you. The site was completely down for almost two days (announced here) due to an issue with my prior domain host, who I've completely had it with now. I obtained uberstudent.com via domain snatching (sounds bad, but it's just a way to register a domain at the very moment it expires from a prior owner and goes public), so I didn't have control over which domain host it was initially transferred to. Yesterday, I set things in motion to have the domains transferred to GoDaddy, so it's doubtful it will happen again. ;)

Scared me there for a time. I have had other distro's close up shop with out notice and when you go to their site nothing. Glad to see the site back up again.

I will never just decide to "disappear" UberStudent. I mean that with the utmost sincerity. :!:

Should I be unable to continue UberStudent--such as due to a serious illness that physicians expect will result in my death--you can fully expect me to undertake rigorous actions to find a successor. And I have already been looking for someone to take over UberStudent, in the event I become unexpectedly incapacitated.

Thanks Stephen, I appreciate your dedication to UberStudent. Over the year I have stayed with the more popular distro's just for the reason I stated above. One in particular was a derivative off Red Hat (Fedora had not been created at the time). It was a one man development team and he had a family and worked full time. It became to much for him so he tried to merge with another distro but one day it was no more, with out a word they closed up shop. So I'm a bit gun shy if you will.

So far I have enjoyed using UberStudent and plan to encourage others to move over to UberStudent as well. Thanks

FYI, Stephen: The main puppy forum goes down periodically, and when it's back up the blame is usually placed upon g*Daddy! I don't know if that's the real reason or not, but I have heard the tale many times about how they wish Mr. Murga would move to another provider.

I hope, and I really sincerely hope, that we can resolve this issue and have a more pleasant experience with GOd*ddy than the Puppy Linux Community has had.
